Based on 87 reviews

This striking working breed originated from the province of Akita in Japan and dates to the 1600s when, legend says, it was bred to hunt the Yezo bear which overran a small island there. Later given to the Emperor, the breed became a symbol of good luck throughout Japanese culture. This strong and dedicated breed not only protected their royalty, but also was used to hunt large game such as deer and wild boar and bear. Today, it is still considered a symbol of good luck in Japan to own an Akita. These dogs make popular companion dogs and are known for being alert, loyal and fearless, making them excellent watchdogs.
